Newest Thing In Diihia Is Story FromOld Bible CHICAGO, Jan. 23.—Daniel in the Lion's Den, a tale inspired by the Old Testament account of The Handwriting on the Wall, will be presented by Montgomery Ward on a coast-to-coast NBC-WEAF network as the third of a series of "Immortal Dramas" Sunday, Jan 27, at 2 p. in., EST. The dramatic qualities of such scenes a.s Daniel's interpretation of the handwriting on the wall and the episode of his being thrown in the lion's den are further enhanced by appropriate symphonic music and special song effects by an A Cappella choir. "Immortal Dramas", a new venture in the field of radio, has been receiving the praise of the public and press alike. Ashton Stevens. veteran dramatic critic of the Chicago Daily American, stepped out of his immediate field of the stage to laud the production of David and Goliath, the first of the series. "I hjeard over a nation-broad broadcast . . . the oldest tiling in our common literature, the Old Testament, become the newest thing in drama," writes Stevens. "... what might bo called the mental visibility of the piece was the highest I have known in the air since Maude Adams last season radioed "The Little Minister' and 'Peter Pan'." "This illusion . . . was obtained by the enthusiastically articulate 'enactment and rich musical embellishment of tc nervously dramatic script by Lloyd Lewis ... It was anyway, an author's pioneering job, discreetly and dramatically served." .o» '. Japanese Girl's Story Is Topic Of Forum Study The story of a Japanese girl, told by herself, was the subject of Twentieth Century Forum's program yesterday afternoon. Mrs. A. B. Goldston was hostess at her home, and Mrs. Don Conley was program leader. "A'' Girl of the Samurai," by Estu Inagaki Sugimoto was the book reviewed.

It will be given at th$-State theater within the next few'weeks. Mrs. Julian Barrett requested that her name be placed on the inactive Ust, and Mrs, Goldston was restored to $ctive membership in her, after a season on the inactive JJsfc Child Study Elects Officers Tired of Acting 'Wronged' Tempting offers have been flaunted in her face, but Dorothy Wilson, above, refuses to be diverted by them from her determination to establish a new reputation on the legitimate stage before re- turning to the movies. The reason is, she says, that all the movie executives know her for Is her acting as the "wronged girl," and she's sick and tired of it. QUARTETS SING TO ENTERTAIN AT BPW CLUB SOCIAL MEETING Quartets and a speaker were heard at a social meeting of Bus- ncss and Professional Women's club yesterday evening, when a larg-e group of guests were entertained with members in the city club room. The only business considered was a report concerning the open forum on housing conditions which the club will sponsor soon.

C., securing more definite information on federal plans. E. H. McGaha, Central Baptist minister ,was the speaker. He spoke of work done by Business and Professional Women's clubs in recent years in: maintaining relations between th'e "home and the business world. - _- -" - ---" The 'Beacon quartet of Amarillo, including H, A.

Bruno Richard Still Believes He'll Be Freed FLEMINGTON, N. J., Jan. 23 (/P) —Bruno Richard Hauptmann is living for the day when he hopes to go unnoticed by the world. "Hauptmann hopes that after his acquittal the world will forget about him and allow him to live quietly with his family," Attorney C. Lloyd Fisher said today after talking with him in the Flemington jail. The taciturn carpenter continues unshaken in his belief that he will soon be free. He is confident, Fisher added, that the state is falling to prove a case against him. The approach of the time for Hauptmann to testify in his trial for the murder of Charles Lindbergh,. Jr., found him composed, cheerful, confident, eating with hearty appetite, and displaying interest in the development of his case. Despite the state's Intent to subject him to a slashing cross-examination, based on alleged discrep- ancias in his statements made after his arrest, Hauptmann did not appear worried. -^f PRESBYTERIAN CHOIR The choir of Presbyterian church will meet at 7:30 Thursday of this week, instead of Wednesday, as has been the custom.

How Calotabs Help Nature To Throw Off a Bad Cold Millions have found in Calotabs a most valuable aid in the treatment of colds. They take one or two tablets the first night and repeat the third or fifth night if needed. How do Calotabs help Nature throw off a cold? First, Calotabs are one of the most thorough and de- nendable of all Intestinal eliminants, thus cleansing the intestinal tract of the germ-laden mucus and to.xines. Second, Calotabs are diuretic to the kidneys, promoting the elimination of cold poisons from the blood. Thus Calotabs serve the double purpose of a purgative and diuretic, both of which are needed in the treatment of colds. Calotabs are quite economical: only twenty-five cents for the family package, ten cents for the trial package. (Adv.)
